TIME: 24 September 2019 1 pm – 4 pm
PLACE: Think Corner, University of Helsinki, Yliopistonkatu 4 (Think Lounge, 2nd floor)
In this workshop we will develop services aimed at enhancing the employment and entrepreneurship of people with foreign backgrounds living in Finland. We will tackle the fragmented nature of the often project-based services. We will take a hands-on attitude in order to improve the services, aiming to enhance their accessibility and impact.
To kick off the event we will hear short presentations by service providers and users. After the presentations we will work in groups to tackle specified problems and find paths to solutions.
We will work in Finnish and in English. The discussion groups are going to be arranged according to the preferred language and interests of the participant.
